* "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" Problem Logging In?

If you get an "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" error when you try to log in, you need to be sure you are accessing the board with a url that starts with "https://ecauldron.com".  If it starts with https://www.ecauldron.com" (or "http://www.ecauldron.com") you will get this error because "www.ecauldron.com" is not technically the same website as "ecauldron.com". Moving to the more secure "https" means it is more picky about such things.

Anything special little things you always do on full moons?
« on: September 23, 2015, 03:38:48 pm »
I used to dread full moons a little bit, back when I worked in the medical field. I worked in nursing homes, and myself and several others I worked with always could swear that residents/patients were more restless and active than ever on full moons. Coupled with anxiety and agitation from dementia in the residents, and this usually meant every full moon night was total chaos in the facility (I worked the overnight or "NOC" shifts).

But after a bit I got into the habit of always wearing heavy lavender (diluted essential oil) on myself, and also carrying a small spritz bottle of lavender in my scrubs pocket, for the residents' rooms. It definitely helped me stay calm, relaxed and friendlier amidst all the havoc and negative energy, and I noticed that several of the residents seemed to respond well to it, too.

I've been out of that line of work for a couple years now, but I still wear heavy lavender for full moons. I was thinking about it today, because I'm almost out and need to make more lavender perfume oil. I'll probably use up the last of what I have come this next full moon.

Does anyone else have their own little tradition(s) that they developed along the way?

My mom worked in hospitals and then later also in nursing homes, and she too swears up and down that the full moon would cause a spike in agitation amongst the patients. I don't think she ever developed a magical coping method, though - I'll ask her the next time I see her.

I like to use such magickal nights for special rituals.  This upcoming full moon I plan on doing a blessing spell.
